A coffee lover's worst nightmare.

There’s a fly in my coffee
I drank half a cup
How’d it get there
I didn’t look up

It’s not moving round
Should I drink it or not
It’s dead I am sure
The coffee is hot

I paid for this beverage
But flies I hate
I am very thirsty
And I am running late

I have an idea
I’ll reach in and pluck it
Don’t question my thinking
I’ll toss it in a bucket

Much better I’ll feel
When the deed is done
Who am I kidding
My coffee’s a toxin

To the line I will hurry
A new Coffee I’ll get
I might not be late
My thirst I’ll quench yet

To work I must rush
No time for a taste
The boss will understand
He’ll see how I raced

A story I’ll make up
No, made it on time
I made it to my chair
As the clock did chime

Alone at last my beverage to sip
I open the coffee with care
Closing my eyes and taking a whiff
I find a nasty hair!

Gross! What a disgusting morning!
My own yuck was when the spaghetti sauce crunched in my mouth, and I found a dead ladybug in there!

I love your sense of humor in this poem. I'm also a coffee lover. Without its stimulant, my heard would stop. I'm thinking of getting up halfway through the night for a hot cup of java just so the engine's not so hard to get rolling each morning.

Seems like you were having a very bad day! Perhaps you should switch to tea? Thanks for the laugh!

Nice one, Steve;
almost as bad as finding half a worm in the apple you're eating.

This is so whimsical! Once, I had about ten ants swarming around in my mouth after a sip of OJ. Apparently they had gone for a dip in an ant-infested fridge. And let me tell you, those little buggers stick to the tongue with tiny suctions on their feet. Oh, sorry about the rambling...
Best Wishes,
